Buju Banton Gets Green Light To Perform In Trinidad This Weekend

Buju Banton show in Trinidad and Tobago this weekend is still on.

His “I Am Legend” concert set for the Queen’s Park Savannah on Sunday, was almost a no go after news surfaced that the Grammy-winning singer is unable to legally enter the Caribbean island because of his criminal record. It’s no secret that Buju Banton served ten years in prison in the United States for a drug trafficking conviction. Under Trinidad laws, his criminal record would automatically disqualify him from entering the country without permission from the government.

National Security Minister Stuart Young told reporters that he is ready to sign off on an exception for Buju Banton to enter the island legally for the show. “I am willing to give the application for the concert to go on,” Young said.

The Minister said he had told the concert promoters to submitted an application for a waiver for Buju Banton and he will more than likely sign off on it. This is good news for the Jamaican singer who has a massive fan base in Trinidad.

Buju is currently making his way across the Caribbean for his “Long Walk To Freedom” tour. He already performed in Jamaica and the Bahamas.
